Kickin’ Chicken Buffalo Salad

Craving some classic tailgating tastes without the tailgate? Looking to inject some of that weekend gameday energy into your weeknight? Get tastebud-pleasing flavors in an easy meal with this fresh, simple, and (dare we say) nutritious recipe. 

The ingredients for this recipe may be simple, but your average meat and veggies get a new life when combined with the tangy heat of our Buffalo Ranch Chopped Salad. So start this recipe by picking up a Buffalo Ranch kit, which contains green leaf lettuce, shredded broccoli, red & savoy cabbage, and is topped with Monterey Jack cheese, and Buffalo-seasoned crouton crumbles. Top it all off with the enclosed Buffalo Ranch Dressing.

Total TIME 20 minutes



  1. Cook chicken tenders according to the package. When cool enough to handle, cut into strips.
  2. Assemble chopped salad kit with toppings and dressing. Top with diced cucumbers and chicken tender strips. Enjoy!

Is Ranch Better Than Blue Cheese?

Sure, everyone knows buffalo and blue cheese are the classic combo. But what if you don’t enjoy the distinctive, pungent flavor of blue cheese? Enter ranch dressing. We know, as Americans we have a slight obsession with this all-purpose condiment. But we’re not sorry. That’s why Taylor Farms created our Buffalo Ranch dressing. It has just the right classic buffalo spice added to classic, creamy Ranch—to make a new but somehow familiar topping to your salad.

Next we’re adding frozen chicken. Because let’s be honest, the easier the recipe, the more likely we are to try it. But should the chicken tenders be grilled or breaded? It’s up to you! Get additional crunch with your favorite air-fried or baked breaded tenders, or opt for grilled for a leaner, gluten-free option. (Or if you REALLY want easy, shred up a rotisserie chicken.) You can’t go wrong.

At Taylor Farms, we’re veggie fanatics. This recipe suggests adding a crisp cucumber to the mix, but you don’t have to stop there! Feel free to add grape tomatoes or green olives. If you’re a buffalo wing purist, add some chopped celery to this salad to get even more juicy crunch. And if you happen to be someone who likes a little blue cheese with their wings, go ahead and add some blue cheese crumbles into the mix. We won’t judge.
